There's nothing more than a nod and wink from deep inside Nissan headquarters in Franklin, Tenn., but that Murano Convertible rumored on other Web sites is in fact a reality.
A ragtop Murano doesn't sound like a logical product step, but TheCarConnection.com's own sources confirm it's a model in development at the automaker, though we can't confirm it will sport a fabric folding top as reported by Edmunds Inside Line
. A V-6 and front-drive will be the standard drivetrain, with all-wheel drive possible, though the Murano may have to lose that option to save weight better spent on reinforcing its body structure.
The Murano convertible's due in early 2010, but maybe an outpouring of sentiment from you readers will speed it up--or shut it down before it hits the market. What say you? Are you ready for a droptop Murano, or is it better left on the drawing boards? Tell us in a comment below.
